In term of releases, PhiMinD is a newcomer (?) in the field of dark ambient / ritual music, but he amazed us by the quality and depth of his works.Ascisco was self-released in december 2013 and we thought it deserves more exposure - because this album is simply one of the best in its league that we heard in 2013.

With Tunnel Songs, Kecap Tuyul delivers his possibly darkest batch of half improvised ritual tunes to date. Prepared guitar is still at the core of his music, but voice and melodies are getting more in the foreground than before.

Three outlines of an obscure world, where echoes of ritual industrial, subdued bits of minimalist repetitive noisy rock, feedbacky drone (or is it drony feedback ?) get mashed in in a halo of lo-fi murkiness...

Sysma was founded around the end of 2015 by 3 improvisers of the XtetX Collective (Torbill, Kecap Tuyul, X_pharmaka) and sice then has regularily included other members of the XtetX (Siu, Charles premier). In this project they create ritualistic atmospheres with a marked focus on voices, but without stylistic limits nor planned structures. Their first album Revenances is an adventurous sonic odissey haunted by screaming guitars, possessed voices, swirling electronic noises, massive drones....
